PERFECT tour for avoiding crowds!
Mar 2020
My wife and I took this tour back in March 2020, just a week before we had to leave Portugal in the oncoming pandemic. But this was the PERFECT tour for avoiding crowds! Alfredo has an all-terrain vehicle and knows the region exceptionally well. We drove around most of the day, stopping at very rural mountain sites. The views were magnificent. Even if there were no pandemic, this would still be one of the best day trips in Portugal. Mountains, nature, village walks, a chance to spot deer. This was a highlight of our three-week trip.

Alfredo is a very passionate and knowledgeable guide. We had a pleasant afternoon into the Lousã Mountains. He showed me the beauties of Schist Villages and also drove to the foot of wind turbines. He knows the plants, animals, and history of the area by heart and doesn't hesitate to share his love of the region to the guest. The tour is very affordable and comfortable. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys local history and nature environment.

We did this half a day trip to Lousa mountains with Green Deer
run by Alfredo. He was very flexible with the whole program n we felt as if we were traveling with a friend. He seemed very passionate about his work n not even for a minute we felt that this is a repetitve job for him.
He also clicked beautiful pictures of us.
We would happily recommend this tour to anyone.
